Community Food Facilitator
Gender Pronouns: he, him, his
Owen, a trans man with a passion for cooking, baking, and za’atar spice, started his culinary journey with a small fib, in order to get a job at a soon-to-open restaurant on the West coast. After landing the job, and working his way up, he eventually left the restaurant industry to cook for a housing program in Vancouver’s downtown eastside, where he remained, until he and his husband decided to move to Manitoba. After a brief “retirement” from the food industry, to start and finish a BA and then a Masters in Linguistics (still working on that one), and a short foray into healthcare, he’s back to his first love, food, and excited to be cooking and teaching alongside some fantastic co-workers at Food Matters Manitoba.
